12 volt lights inside 2016 clipper

Has anyone had to replace a light in their coachmen clipper yet? My light over the dinette only lights half the led strip ?

Yours must a bit different than ours. Ours has a small round light that puts out plenty of light the problem with ours is the light from the side is blinding if you look toward the table. Gotta make some kinda shade.

My 12 volt lights are all the same,just an oval light with on off switch.I popped the cover off and it has a led strip in it and this one is only half lit.Light wise it is still enough but figured I better find a replacement before no light at all.

What you have is a circuit board with multiple LED lamps. ALL the lamps in one circuit board are wired in one circuit IF some . of the lamps are not lighting I would say a connection to the dark lamps has been broken.

Thurman thanks for the response I will ask a dealer near me about it. They are real close but when I bought my unit it was from 80 miles away.The local dealers had nothing small around here. We have a 16 fb coachmen clipper.

Clipper 17RD lights

I have a 2015 Clipper 17RD my lights inside are like yours; LEDs on a circuit board. I had one set of lights needed to be replaced. My dealer had to order them I installed them my self as I did not want to have to drop off the camper and wait on a dealer. Very simple install two wires, two wire connectors. Mine were a warranty item I would expect yours are too

Have a 2016 Clipper 17BH and had to replace the light above the bottom bunk and above the double bed. Just couldn't turn them on. Cheap lights and when you pushed on the circle "on/off" no connection was made. Fortunately this was discovered during our walk through and the dealer just ordered replacements, along with a couple of other things. They are bright, but we use battery operated candles at night.

Thanks for the replies, I will see if they may just send me a strip and I can put it in.

It would be nice to know where you can buy replacements for these Clipper lights? Does anyone know where to order them from? What brand are they, do they have a name on the lights?

Would be nice to know where to get replacements. I did notice on the later 2016 Clippers (mine was an early version) that they were replaced with lights that actually have an on/off switch. Also a better mattress, grrrrr.
